c`HA NOI (VNS) — The Viet Nam Fine Arts Museum will host a photo exhibition on natural landscapes and cultural activities in Tohoku taken by Japanese photographers.
The exhibition was curated by Kotaro Iizawa and held for the first time one year after the 2011 earthquake in Tohoku. The exhibition has been held in many countries around the world such as the US, Macedonia, New Zealand and Romania.
The photos of Tohoku do not attempt to show the extent of the damage or recovery, but represent the varied faces of Tohoku, such as festivals, folk religious rites and the photographers' personal histories with the landscapes of their home regions.
The exhibition will highlight Jomon culture, which is the deepest traditional Japanese culture and has been gradually fading away. The legacy of Jomon still lives and breathes in Tohoku.
About 120 photos including black and white, and colour will be displayed at the museum from October 30 to November 13 at 66 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street. — VNS
